On June 21, 2010 Barnes & Noble reduced the Nook's price to US$199 and announced the launch of a new Wi-Fi-only model for US$149.

Barnes and Noble Nook Overview:

–G4, 2010 Consumer Electronics Show

* Over 2 million books — download wirelessly in seconds
* Reads like paper with crisp, clear text
* Extra-long battery life, read for days
* Exclusive LendMe™ lets you share reading with friends

Barnes & Noble Features: The original Nook provides a black-and-white E Ink display for viewing digital content with most navigation and additional content provided through a color touchscreen. The Color Nook provides a larger, color LCD display. Pages are turned using arrow buttons on each side of the nook. The original Nook connects to Barnes and Noble's digital store through a free connection to AT&T's 3G network or through available wi-fi connections. Users can read books without a wireless connection; disconnecting the wireless connection can prolong the battery's charge to up to ten days.

The device has a MicroSD expansion slot for extra storage and a user-replaceable rechargeable battery. The battery can be charged through either an AC adapter or a micro-USB 2.0 cable, both included with new nooks. The device also includes a web browser, a built-in dictionary, Chess and Sudoku, an audio player, speakers, and a 3.5mm headphone jack.

Supported ebook file-formats with DRM include:

* eReader PDB with Barnes & Noble's eReader DRM, sometimes called Secure eReader format
* EPUB with Barnes & Noble's eReader DRM, used for ebooks downloaded wirelessly to the nook
* EPUB with Adobe ADEPT DRM, sometimes called Adobe EPUB or Adobe Digital Editions format
* PDF with Adobe ADEPT DRM (However, figures and equations will not appear)

The EPUB with eReader DRM combination is a new format created for the nook. Adobe has undertaken to include support for that combination in future releases of Adobe Reader Mobile software, to allow other reader devices to support that format.

Supported ebook file formats without DRM include:

* eReader PDB
* PDF, including password-protected PDF

Supported sound file formats for music and audiobooks include MP3 and Ogg Vorbis, but not WMA.

Image-file formats—used for wallpapers, screen savers, and book-cover thumbnails—include JPG, GIF, PNG, and BMP.

The nook provides a "LendMe" feature allowing users to share some books with other people - depending upon licensing by the book's publisher. The purchaser is permitted to share a book once with one other user for up to two weeks. Users will be able to share purchased books with others who are using Barnes & Noble's reader application software for iPhone, iPod Touch, iPad, Blackberry, Mac, Android OS and Windows as well as other.

The nook system recognizes physical Barnes & Noble stores; customers using the nook in the Barnes & Noble stores receive access to special content and offers while the device remains connected to the store's wi-fi. In addition, most e-Books in the catalog can be read for up to an hour while connected to the store wi-fi network with the 1.3 software update.
